Make the Most of This Recipe With Tips From The Betty Crocker® Kitchens
Improvise! Bay scallops are perfect for this dish because they are bite size, but you also can use sea scallops, cut into fourths.
Success Tip
When slicing green onions, you can use both the white and green parts of the onion. You might want to save a few of those green tops├╣they also make a great garnish!
